Jerwood Visual Arts is a national programme supporting visual arts practice, through which Jerwood Charitable Foundation works with early career artists to commission and present new work. Artist opportunities run throughout the year alongside a programme of related exhibitions, events and commissioned writing taking place online, in London and across the UK. 

Jerwood Visual Arts launched at the Frieze Art Fair in 2006 and brought together for the first time the Jerwood Charitable Foundation’s numerous visual arts projects and today makes up a third of the Charitable Foundation’s activity and revenue.

The current exhibition programme is comprised of our annual touring exhibitions Jerwood/ Film and Video Umbrella Awards, Jerwood Drawing Prize, Jerwood Painting Fellowships, and Jerwood Makers Open, all of which are open submission and Jerwood Encounters, our series of one-off, curated exhibitions that do not currently tour. For more information visit our Current Exhibitions pages.

A series of Talks & Events by artists, curators, writers and educationalists accompany exhibitions at Jerwood Space and on tour. We also host a writer in residence who critically and creatively responds to the exhibitions at Jerwood Space on the Blog. Debate and discussion is encouraged so please log on to have your say.

Previous Jerwood Visual Arts exhibitions include the renowned Jerwood Painting Prize, Jerwood Applied Arts Prize and the Jerwood Moving Image Awards. More recent exhibitions include Jerwood Contemporary Makers and Jerwood Contemporary Painters both of which ended in 2010. For information on all our previous exhibitions visit our Archive pages.
